Habitually Chic Favorite Things Gift Guide 2017: No. 3
I can’t believe there are only 20 days left until Christmas. If you’re behind on your shopping, I’m back with another gift guide to help you check everyone off your list. I think the best gift you can give someone is something that you know they will love or something they might not buy themselves because of the price.
Let’s face it, a lot of college and sports apparel for fans is quite ugly. Thanks to Hill Flint, you can buy your favorite fan a chic vintage inspired sweater or sweatshirt. I might have to buy the Harvard cashmere sweater just for the H but they have every college and Major League Baseball team covered.
A luxe gift for the frequent flier on your list is this Rodin olio lusso Travel Set. Smaller sizes of Rodin’s cult products come in a chic travel case ready for any long haul flight.
Cuyana is the perfect place to find gift but I especially love their Leather Travel Case Set. They come in 12 different colors and can be monogrammed.
The temperature is dropping which makes it perfect for this Plaid Lambswool Throw Blanket. Save 20% with the code HOLIDAY for a limited time.
To Catch a King: Charles II’s Great Escape written by Charles Spencer, Princess Diana’s brother, is an action packed true story for the history and royal lover on your list.
Speaking of royals, Cire Trudon have been making candles for kings since 1643. A perfect hostess gift is their Odeurs Royales Candle Set which recall scents surrounding Versailles.
The young art lover who could also use a lesson in saving money needs this Balloon Doggy Money Bank. The Balloon Money Bank also comes in other colors and animals.
These Shaggy Puppy Sleeping Bags are so cute that I wish they came in adult sizes. The Star Wars Shaped Sleeping Bags are also amazing.
The Jo Malone Holiday Miniature Soap Collection look like candy but are a cute stocking stuffer or hostess gift.
You can’t go wrong with any gift from Smythson but their Make It Happen Panama Notebook is my favorite. There are so many options and colors that you can definitely find the perfect option for everyone.
The Net-a-Porter Holiday Beauty Kit is a fun gift for the beauty lover in your life but it’s also perfect for traveling.
Mistakes Were Made (Some in French) is the perfect present for the Francophile in your life who dreams of buying and renovating a chateau in France.
As I’ve mentioned before, I love giving an ephemeral gift with something that can be used long after it’s gone. These Aerin Woven Basket Cachepots would be perfect with a topiary, Amaryllis, or paperwhites.
There are some men who still wear cuff links so why not give them in this Navy Leather Cuff Link Box.
A practical but cool present for a guy who just started working is this Large Style Box from The Tie Bar. They offer lots of other colors and styles too.
I can’t imagine anyone who wouldn’t love this Ginger Jar Champagne Bucket with a great bottle of bubbly.
So many Paris guide books sound like they were written by someone who visited the city once. I have high hopes that Don’t Be a Tourist in Paris will be perfect for anyone planning a trip to the City of Light.
If money is no object and you want to give a special woman a very special gift, I highly recommend this Victoria Beckham Beauty Light Box Noir Beauty Set.
I love this Fornasetti Architettura Thyme, Lavender and Cedarwood Candle for the architecture buff. After it’s burned down, they’ll have a chic jar for their pencils.
Anyone planning a visit or move to England will appreciate this Cashmere Knit Lounge Set.
Don’t leave your furry friend out of the gift giving this holiday season. This Dog Bed would be a cozy present and also look great in any decor.
I read about Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls: 100 Tales of Extraordinary Women on twitter and thought it would make a perfect gift for a little girl. I was surprised to learn that there is not one statue honoring a woman in Central Park so it’s important to remind all women about the extraordinary women in the world. There’s also a follow up second edition.
They didn’t have adult looking ride on cars when I was little. What boy or girl wouldn’t be excited to find this Audi R8 Spyder Battery Powered Ride On Car under the tree this Christmas.
Happy Holidays and Happy Shopping!
